It’s about the entrepreneurs, not only the money

When we’ve started How to Web, we thought of it as an ongoing business. It’s almost impossible to develop such a big event, as we are working on this one for 9 months, with a team of 15 people, without getting all the financial support you need. But it’s not only about the money.

How to Web’s purpose is to create a direct connection between Eastern Europe and the main tech scenes of the world, for helping the local tech scenes developing bigger and better businesses. And a big part of that is related to entrepreneurs and their continuous quest of conquering the world.

During last months we’ve been in contact with tens of local entrepreneurs, eager to find out more about How to Web and it’s benefits. However, there was (and still is) an issue for getting to our conference: the ticket price. Even if we’ve set a very low price (TheNextWeb’s full ticket price is 1000 EUR, while Future of Web Apps is about 850 EUR), it seemd a little too much for some entrepreneurs mainly because of their low income.

So here is a great deal: since last week, are running a very cool discount program for the members of 4 most important Romanian web entrepreneurship networks: Bucharest Hubb, Microsoft BizSpark, OpenCoffee Bucharest and Timisoara’s Business Software Incubator. If you are a member of any of those networks, you can still get a very early bird ticket (120 EUR + VAT).

So contact your local community manager and ask for directions, as we are preparing the greatest web event in Eastern Europe for you too !
